CARMICHAEL, Calif. – A 62-year-old male died after a motor home he were living in caught fire Monday morning in Carmichael.

Firefighters were dispatched to a commercial vehicle fire on Leos Lane near Fair Oaks Blvd. around 7:45 Monday morning after receiving multiple reports of thick black smoke showing from the back of a tire shop.
